ASGM baseline report for Senegal (2019)
The AGC worked with the Direction de l’Environnment et des Etablissements Classés in Senegal and UNEP to produce a baseline inventory of the ASGM sector in Senegal. This baseline report describes the state of ASGM in the country including information on mining practices, gold production and mercury use. This report was prepared as part of the process of developing a national action plan to reduce/eliminate mercury use in Senegal’s ASGM sector.
